Title (EN) DAMPER TUBE REINFORCEMENT SLEEVE
(FR) MANCHON DE RENFORCEMENT DE TUBE D'AMORTISSEUR
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A strut assembly includes an upper mount assembly, a shock absorber and a knuckle. The upper mount assembly is attached to a piston rod which is a part of the shock absorber. The knuckle is attached to an outer tube of the shock absorber which can be a reserve tube of a dual-tube shock absorber or a pressure tube of a single tube shock absorber. A reinforcement member increases the strength of the outer tube in the area that interfaces with the knuckle.
(FR)Un ensemble de support comprend un ensemble de montage supérieur, un amortisseur de chocs et une articulation. L'ensemble de montage supérieur est fixé sur une tige de piston qui constitue une partie de l'amortisseur de chocs. L'articulation est fixée sur un tube externe de l'amortisseur de chocs qui peut être un tube de réserve d'un amortisseur de chocs à double tube ou un tube de pression d'un amortisseur de chocs à un seul tube. Un élément de renforcement accroît la résistance du tube externe dans la zone servant d'interface avec l'articulation.
